“The best way to stay competitive and protect the business for long-term is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico,” a main dressed in a suit tells the assembled workers, who immediately react with bewilderment and outrage.

Throughout his speech, the man frequently tells the angered crowd to “quiet down,” and tells them that relocating is “strictly a business decision” done to “maintain high levels of product quality.”

Some 1,400 people will lose their jobs when the plant moves to Mexico. Theirs are only the latest lost due to the effects of the disastrous North American Free Trade Agreement, which allowed U.S. companies to shift production to Mexico where they could pay three dollars an hour, not have to worry about unions, child labor laws, or work safety, and then ship their product back to the U.S. duty and restriction free.

NAFTA was widely supported by Republicans in congress, heralded by President Bill Clinton and defended by First Lady Hillary Clinton. While serving as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton championed the similarly criticized Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement, recently signed into law by President Obama, but came out against it around the time she announced her candidacy for president.
